A Look at the School’s New Play

Chris Baker, Writer

This year, the FHS Drama Club will be performing Rebel Without A Cause on December 17 and 18.

Mrs. Waters, the director of the production, is doing a great job leading the club as she does every year.

Franklin’s production is based off the original film, which was written and directed by Nicholas Ray in 1955 and starred James Dean. The overall story involves one main character, Jim Stark, who moves to Los Angeles. From there, the angsty 17 year-old deals with typical teenage struggles from the time period, such as popularity and fitting in.

In a recent interview with the lead of show, Grant Spinella, I received some insight on the overall concept and features of the play.
